For Samsung’s Logic chips first global carbon footprint certification

Samsung Electronics has announced that four of its System LSI products received product carbon footprint label certification from the Carbon Trust. This is the first of Samsung’s logic chips to do so. The semiconductor industry’s first carbon footprint accreditation for memory chips from the Carbon Trust in 2019, has been bagged by Samsung.

Now it is broadening its Environmental, Social, and Governance spectrum with this logic chips. They are eco-friendly too. The industry’s first triple Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon, Water and Waste, was also bagged by Samsung in June 2021. The Carbon Trust is a partner of organizations around the world, which advises businesses on their opportunities in a sustainable, low carbon world. They also measure and certifies the environmental footprint of organizations, supply chains and products. Samsung’s System LSI products received the CO2 Measured product carbon footprint label. This label certifies the chip’s carbon footprint.

It requires great time for correctly measuring the carbon footprint of a product. It also involves calculating the amount of carbon emitted from the raw materials. Hugh Jones, managing director at the Carbon Trust Advisory said that they are pleased to have worked with Samsung on this step in its sustainability journey. The Carbon Trust’s Carbon Measured certification is a clear and credible indicator for consumers. The four products to receive certification are the Samsung’s System LSI chips, from mobile processors to image sensors, the Exynos 2100, a high-performance mobile processor built with the most advanced 5-nanometer (nm) extreme ultra-violet (EUV) process node, the 0.7-micrometer (μm)-pixel image sensor ISOCELL HM2, DTV SoC (S6HD820), and TCON (S6TST21).

The four chips, along with the fourteen semiconductor products from the Carbon Trust have been certified. Seong-dai Jang, senior vice president and head of DS Corporate Sustainability Management Office at Samsung Electronics said that they are thrilled to be globally acknowledged for the eco-friendly efforts. They will continue to fulfill their carbon reduction goals and expand their efforts.
